Happy New Year!

2010 was good to me, I think.

I figured out a lot of stuff that needed figuring out, and I started doing a lot of things that I'd been wanting to do for a while.

I made a list five months ago, and I found that that motivates me more than resolutions ever have, so the only resolution I made was that in 2011 I would wear mascara sometimes.

For New Year's this year, Em, La, Sara and I didn't make plans, but then at the last minute we put on inappropriately short dresses (that made our legs look amazing) and inappropriately tall heels and went out for a fancy cocktail. We promptly ran into people from high school and went to Bukowski's instead. They had an anti-cover charge and they gave us a dollar for coming in. We drank fancy beer and it was unexpectedly wonderful.

It was a really lovely start to 2011, a year that I think will be just like the night we celebrated its beginning. Here's hoping for an unexpectedly wonderful year, friends.

Happy Happy 2011!


  1. Anti-cover charge? That's awesome!!!

    And yay to short dresses and high heels!


  2. Happy New Year to you Abbie!! I have a good feeling about this year, here's hoping it is in fact a special one!

  3. Happy 2011 Abbie! I do think it's going to be an especially good one.

  4. Happy New Year! It sounds like you had a good one.

  5. Oh wow, i love your resolution. I'm all about those easy, manageable goals instead of big sweeping resolutions. Hubs and i simply want to eat dinner at the table more often, instead of on the run or in front of the tv. Doesnt have to be a healthy meal or even home cooked... Just eaten at the table! 2011 will be an amazing year!

  6. happy new year to you!!!! i loveie your blogie abbie. i also love that you changed the spelling of your name. you are cool.

  7. i cant leave the house without wearing mascara. perhaps i should make it a rule to try not to wear it sometimes so as to work on my vanity.

    happy new year.

  8. I love it! Here's to 2011, the year of Mascara. Somtimes...

    Happy New Year, Abbie!

  9. They gave you a dollar? That is awesome! Happy new year!

  10. Sounds like a lovely little NYE to me, pretty lady! I love your resolution...too funny, but totally attainable! xoxo {av} P.S. You could win another fun short dress via my giveaway! :)

  11. I agree, Here's to the Anti-Cover charge! That's my kind of place!

    I'm with you on the mascara.... it's such a pain but necessary when you have the face of a 16-year old but are actually 25-years old!

    Happy New Year :)

  12. I like your quirky way of writing. so much!

    but...where are the photos of your dresses and heels? come on abbie!
